A Recipe for Success That Always Works

Recently, I was asked, “what makes one business successful when another similar business fails”. Well, there are many reasons but here is the foundation of success for any business. I like to call it “a recipe for success that always works”.

Here is My Recipe for Success

Hire the best people, people with a customer-first mindset. Search for the candidates that are goal-oriented and “teachable”. You can always train them the necessary job skills but attitude, desire, forward-thinking, and a heavy dose of common sense must already be present.

Next, encourage a “group responsibility” to look at a product or service challenge from all angles, especially from the customer’s point of view. Example:

  1. “What would I expect if I was buying this product?”
  2. “How would I feel if I had to wait on hold for 20 minutes just to speak with a live person on the phone?”
  3. “Are we delivering what we advertise?”
  4. “Is this the best we can do?”

You may not hit the service bullseye every time but before you know it, you’ll be surrounded by a team of like-minded “ambassadors” that will treat your business as their own, for the good of the company and the customer. And isn’t that what we always wanted?

Start creating your own recipe for success that always works.
